What is a Professional Doctorate?

Professional Doctorates offer the equivalent status of a PhD and are designed for professionals who will complete work-based research. You will focus on applying research to practical problems, formulating solutions to complex issues, and designing effective professional practices within your field.

At NTU, our Professional Doctorate courses are structured around a series of documents, each of which is supported by an attendance workshop. This blends classroom attendance and research with the same level of independent work and critical analysis as a PhD.
